Welcome

Hi, and welcome to my site. Here you'll find info about my upcoming performances and signing up for drum lessons, you'll even be able to download some lessons and listen to some tracks on which I've had the pleasure of performing. But first, let me tell you a little about myself: I've been drumming my whole life; my dad was a drummer and maybe that's what got me started, but I've always known that I am a drummer, from the time I was very young. I started drumming when I was three, performing when I was eight, and teaching when I was sixteen. I've worked hard over the years, marching in drum and bugle corps, studying privately, and eventually attending Berklee College of Music to develop what I hope are a unique and versatile set of musical skills largely focused on the drum set. I've had the incredibly great pleasure of performing with some truly amazing musicians during my career, and I look forward to many more exciting adventures in the future. I'm currently teaching at two locations, one in Weymouth, MA and the other in Natick, MA, and I'm also performing regularly with Hypaspace, The Steve Marchena Jazz Experience, and TALZTOP. Please look around and feel free to contact me to sign up for lessons or for booking info, or if you have any questions or just want to chat.

Recording Projects

A recording by the three founding members of Hypaspace. I think this represents our best playing to date.

A cool CD that I contributed some percussion to here and there.
Hypaspace's third recording effort.
I played on several tracks on this CD which was the start of me performing several shows with Bryan. We played together for about two years, and it was super fun.
An anthology of acts who were part of the Circus of the Shattered Monkey, a travelling collection of music makers who were eclectic, talented, lovely, and under-appreciated. My band Hypaspace offered a few tracks from our 4004 recording, but also collaborated with William James Austin on a stunning track called "Desolation Circus."
Just a small appearance on this CD by two good friends. I play frame drum on the closing track, "March."
Hypaspace's second CD release. This contains our first and second recording projects on one disc.
This cd documents the concerts during the final semester of a performance major at Berklee College of music and includes classical, blues, fingertapping and fusion all performed live solo, in duets, trios and quartets.
